Frogger video game cartridge – Parker Brothers (1982)

We hopped Frogger out of the arcade. Now can you hop him home?

Frogger has just jumped out of the arcades and into your home. Sights, sounds, and all. Do you have the skill to get him to his home?

Frogger’s first challenge is to cross a highway where reckless hot rods hurtle by, and huge trucks go thundering in his path. Every safe jump in this maze of motor and metal is a crucial step home.

Beyond is the raging river where the safety of a slippery log or diving turtle is all Frogger can count on to stay afloat.

Frogger‘s last leap to his lily pad home must be perfect, or it’s back to the road to try again. Good luck. Frogger’s counting on you.

For your Atari Video Computer System and the Sears Video Arcade.

Qbert video game – Parker Brothers (1983)

It’s not easy being Q*bert, but it’s fun

No one ever said it was going to be easy hopping the irresistible Q*bert from cube to cube and staying out of harm’s way. Especially when he’s trying to avoid creeps like Colly and Ugg.

But, there are times Q*bert can’t escape. And just like in the popular arcade game, he doesn’t take it quietly. Q*bert mutters a few choice words, puts his nose to the grindstone, and comes back for more.

You’ll grow so attached to Q*bert, you won’t want to stop playing. He’s one little character who’s good to the last hop.
